Whenever hot, dry weather persists, spider mite populations may develop on both corn and soybean. Twospotted spider mites, Tetranychus urticae, are serious pests of many crops throughout the United States. Producers in areas of Iowa where the weather remains dry should be on the lookout for spider mite infestations.
